The other week when I was in a cookie baking mood, I aced it with some, if I do say so myself, pretty awesome Red Velvet Cookies. They just rocked, simple as!
As usual, I wasn’t content with just making one type of something, I had to ‘go large’ and whip up another flavour. Well, the oven was on and it sort of justified the 20 minutes of pre-heat and baking, and another 15 minutes wasn’t going to hurt the electricity bill too much.
Now part of the cookie baking mood was due to a Sunday morning in front of Food Network, the old grey matter being stimulated and having devoured one several rather chewy cookies in a meeting that week. Inspired by the meeting cookies (alas shop-brought) and the very lovely lady on Food Network baking away in her pristine kitchen (seriously, I thought it was normal for every inch of the work surface to be covered), I decided to add oatmeal and raisin cookies to the baking list.
